Bryan Caraway Hoping To Fight Top Ten Caliber Opponent
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.10.2013

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Bryan Caraway (18-6 MMA, 3-1 UFC) said that he is hoping his next fight in the bantamweight division is with a top-ten level opponent.

He said: "I think what really changed things around recently was really just getting control of my emotions and my nerves and my performance anxiety. It's not that I was scared to fight. I was scared to lose, and all the pressure I would put on myself my family, my friends, I didn't want to let them down. I'd have really, really severe performance anxiety, and I got to a point where I started hating the sport so much that it just wasn't fun anymore. It was just miserable. I couldn't believe that I was letting something that I love so much that was so pure like MMA get so washed out by all the pressure."

He recently worked as an assistant coach on The Ultimate Fighter 18 to support his girlfriend Miesha Tate. His most recent fight was in April, getting UFC 159's "Submission of the Night" bonus for his submission over Johnny Bedford with sixteen seconds left in the fight. He's 4-1 in his past five fights, with his only loss a split decision to Takeya Mizgaki.

He's doing a lot better after his 2010 losses to Fredson Paixao and Mark Hominick, which he says has helped him get rid of stress. He added he was "puke free" in his past seven fights.
